DJ Fresh Biography
One of the originators of drum&bass, Fresh began his career as founding member of the
supergroup Bad Company. In ‘98 when Fresh was still 19, the group released The Nine - a
track that was to later be voted the best d&b tune of all time by D&B Arena. Not bad for a guy still in his teens!
After winning many awards with BC, including KMAG’s best album of 2000, he teamed up
with Adam F in 2003 to found Breakbeat Kaos. The label quickly became a tastemaker,
championing Pendulum’s game-changing album Hold Your Colour and playing host to
Fresh’s critically acclaimed debut LP, Escape from Planet Monday.
But in the last 12 months, DJ Fresh has truly become a household name with the huge
success of tracks like Gold Dust & Louder. With Louder notching up over 500,000 sales and being the first Number 1 for Fresh it also became the first EVER dubstep track to top the charts and feature as the soundtrack to the Lucozade advert.
Constantly pushing the boundaries of the d&b/dubstep crossover sound, FRESH/LIVE
combines the technique and hysteria of his DJ sets with the energy of a live instrumental performance. Fresh has handpicked a fine selection of musicians to create a highly skilful unit that will delight crowds with their expertise.
On the all-important drums is the magnificent Kodish, a man with over 10 years experience as a drummer in the scene, having performed with such eminent acts as Moving Fusion, BC and Pendulum. His involvement with the scene that Fresh has helped establish speaks volumes of his understanding of the music and its roots.
On guitar is Richard De Rosa, founder of Ska/Swing band Scubaroots who combine the
sounds of yesteryear with electro and d&b, and have performed to 1000s at countless
festivals. Seemingly a master of all trades, he also produced the band’s album, has since
been nominated for producer of the year at the SouthWest Music Awards, and recently
performed on Radio 1’s Live Lounge with Example & Fresh.
Vocalist Fleur exploded onto the scene after performing on X Factor to 9 million TV viewers in 2005. Since then she’s begun an increasingly successful solo career, having sung with Fresh on Live Lounge and Ms Dynamite on BBC 1Xtra. Her stunning, soulful voice promises to tie all the live elements together fantastically and produce an event of epic proportions!
With Fresh himself on the keys and the decks, this exciting new concept is set to stun crowds into submission and tear up dancefloors across the nation. Make sure you don’t miss out on this year’s biggest live event!
